Thoughts and opinions. I've narrowed down my lift choices. But I'm stuck right now between 2.5 and 3.5 inches of lift. I want low COG. And to run 37's or 38's. But plan on pulling the fender liners and running the highline kit.

Doing a lot of Moab/Rubicon sort of thing. Which way would you go? Which way did you go and why?

This is kind of a dumb poll. If you want max travel and better breakover angle, go with 3.5". If you aren't worried about those things go with a 2.5" kit. If you're going Metalcloak or Rock Krawler, you're gonna want the 3.5" to get the most out of those lifts. Do you have a Rubicon? Makes a difference on the front fender clearance.
